10. St. Louis, Missouri

Eye-popping crime statistic: There were 2,903 violent crimes in St. Louis last year.
Complex's pitch for a TV show: St. Louis Representatives is a mini-series about a group of gangsta rappers from the Lou who realize they will never be taken serious as gangstas because of all the years of shitty Nelly music. So, they decide to do crime, videotape it, then do a song about the crime they videotaped themselves doing. Again, it's a mini-series.
